This is a strikingly lovely design by Lily Go.

Here is how Lily describes Something in the Rain:

Something in The Rain is an asymmetric triangle shaping on a bias, thus creating a long crescent shaped shawl. The shawl generous length is perfect for many styling options.

This shawl is designed to be knit in fingering or heavy fingering yarns in 2 colors adorned with plenty of beads (if beads are not for you, then you can omit them all together).

Pattern includes charts and written directions.

The Yarn and Colorway

We have put together kits that really appeal to us but not using the same yarn nor colors that Lily used in her original.  You can see our kits in the inset photo on lower righthand corner of the top picture and again below that. 

Our yarn is from Madeline Tosh:

1. Eleven Dark is a deep tonal blend of blue-violets, with subtle changes with some lighter and some darker shades.  The yarn  including violet and and is their Tosh Merino Light + Copper.  The fiber content is 90% superwash merino + 8% acrylic + 2% stellina and it is has 420 yards (384m) per skein.  The stellina in these skeins is a lovely copper.

2. Siren is a dramatic red-violet tonal colorway. This one is dyed in TML + Glitter, which is the same fiber content and yardage but the stellina this time is a mix of subtle colors.

One skein of each will give you well more yarn than you need for even the largest size of this shawl.


With the stellina threads, you might decide that beads are a bit much though I think they will add to the charm of the piece. 

Thus for each kit we offer you the option:  Get the "yarn alone" or  include the full amount of beads needed for the largest size (956 size 6/0s).  

 If you have a preference on bead color, tell me.  Otherwise I will choose for you. 

The Pattern

The pattern cost has not been figured into this and it does not automatically come with the kit. 

We offer three options. 

I know some knitters prefer to get the pattern directly from Lily via her Ravelry web page. This will give you a copy in your Ravelry library. In this case, set the drop-down menu above to "No Pattern Needed," as you will be getting the pattern there.

If you would prefer a printed copy or a PDF via email, please select that option via the "Pattern" drop-down menu.

Should you decided to choose getting your pattern via PDF file, know that it will be emailed right before your kit is shipped.
